Jiangyin Forest Park

Jiangyin, Jiangsu | 2013

CXT + NAK

Just as Central Park is to New York and the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is to Singapore, the Forest Park will be part of what makes Jiangyin a great place to live. Straddled between the existing city of Jiangyin and the future city will be an urban forest - a green oasis in the midst of an urban landscape. This urban forest will offer a place for city-dwellers to escape and immerse themselves in nature. Flowers will bloom where there has been bare dirt, trees will stand where there has been manufacturing, and existing parkland will be regenerated. The urban forest will be easily accessible from both sides of the city, and offer spaces in which to explore, relax and retreat. Essentially, the Forest Park will be the "life line" connecting Jiangyin and the Second City.
